Abstract : Given a set of words and a probability model for random texts, we are interested in the behavior of occurrences of the words in a random text. Clumps are shown here to play a central role in these problems. They can be used to calculate relevant quantities, such as the probability that a random text contains a given number of pattern word occurrences. We provide combinatorial properties and describe two clump automata that can be used to e fficiently calculate generating functions.
